“In all my dealings I have found all of the staff at CMC to be knowledgeable, efficient, and polite. They are good communicators, which is particularly important during major projects, as it keeps the client fully informed.”

Gary Emmerson Series 1 E-Type

“CMC are always efficient, courteous, effective and reliable in everything that they do. Perhaps the greatest benefit is the peace of mind that comes with entrusting my car to people who really know and understand the marque and model and who can invariably go straight to the heart of the problem and fix it without abortive work, saving valuable time and money. The quality of service and workmanship is excellent.”

Brian Green Series 1 E-Type

“As you may recall, I looked long and hard for an E-Type, before placing an order with CMC and I can honestly say that it was the best decision I could have made. The quality of the workmanship and the attention to detail is outstanding. Furthermore, on the inevitable occasions when something needs attention, the service has always been friendly and helpful.”

John Hibbs Mk2 3.8 Saloon

“The restoration work on my 1963 Jaguar 3.8 Mk2 was completed to the highest possible standard by a couteous, highly skilled enthusiastic team. I was consulted at every stage and made to feel most welcome when I visited to inspect the work as it progressed. Throughout I was impressed by the attention given to detail and I remain highly satisfied bt the end result. From now on I will trust my car to no one else.”

Lukas Huni XK150 Roadster

“Having had the opportunity to drive the car extensively and look at it further in all aspects, I can only once again congratulate you on the extremely high level of perfection, both mechanically and regarding the coachwork. I simply cannot see that there is any other company in England quite capable of thie quality”.

Mike McGrath Series 1 E-Type FHC

“Having successfully sourced the vehicle for me, the enhancements to the cooling and braking systems, enabled me to enjoy a fantastic summers motoring this year. All in all, I covered in excess of 3,000 miles over the summer without the car missing a beat. I shall be in touch shortly to discuss servicing arrangements over the winter”.

Clive Redfern Series 1 E-Type

“The engine has now completed about 6,000 miles since its total rebuild by yourselves and runs like a sewing machine, the only difference is that it has the grunt of a steam train.”
